Happy New Year! We’ve bounced into 2017 and I’m starting the new year off with a cold, ugh (though fingers-crossed, it’s almost done). It’s not exactly the way I’d like to start a new year, but the good news is I’m all over clean, green, hearty, nourishing and delicious food right now. Gotta build this immune system back up!

So in addition to drinking the healthiest green smoothies, I’m digging into the archives to find the best Whole30 recipes. You guys know I’m not fond of rigid diets and detoxes, but I am a fan of Whole30 for one simple reason. It’s a temporary period of food elimination to figure out how your individual body responds to specific foods. Are you dairy-sensitive? Gluten-sensitive? Or maybe soy-sensitive?

Most of us aren’t really sure because those foods are woven throughout many packaged food items. Whole30 is a back-to-basics approach where you eliminate foods with the most common allergens and then systematically re-introduce foods one at a time to see how your body reacts. It doesn’t mean you have to keep those foods out of your diet forever. But if you feel better without them (more energy, less bloating and acne), that’s good to know, isn’t it?

Whole30 recipes aren’t depriving, especially when you focus on all the goodness you can still enjoy. And if you stick with the full 30-days, I guarantee you’ll not only feel healthier and more energized, you may even learn a thing or two about your body. So let’s dive in….

  • Brian Jones

    Fab collection of recipes, you are making me jealous with the lamb dishes, so difficult to find here and that stew looks incredible.

    • Thanks Brian! That’s a bummer about the lamb. Where are you located?

      • Brian Jones

        I’m in Eastern Hungary, farming country and we do rear lamb but the export market is so strong so it all gets sent away to our wealthier European neighbors ;)

  • @KarenBurnsBooth

    SUCH an amazing collection of tasty looking meals and treats – I am always looking out for helpful meal ad menu idea lists like this, Karen

  • Amanda ( The Kitcheneer)

    Agreed with the green smoothie kick! I’m drinking one every day and I’m starting my 8th Whole30 next week! Had a few treats the past week. Ready to get back to it!
